For the most part, the average range of the Honda Remote Start system is about 400 feet. However, that range can reach from 600 to 1,500 feet if the vehicle is parked in an open area. If you have noticed that you have to be much closer to than any of those distances to get Remote Start to work properly, there might be some other factors at play.
The signal range for some remote functions, like opening the trunk and unlocking the doors is shorter than the signal range for starting the engine.
Why doesn’t my Honda Remote Start work?
Assuming the battery in the key fob is working properly, there are a few reasons why the Honda Remote Start system might not work. The most likely cause is that there is some kind of obstruction blocking the signal like a larger vehicle, concrete walls or, perhaps, the vehicle is parked underground. Additionally, the remote’s radio frequency might be suffering from interference from a high-power transmitter, like a cell tower or a shortwave HAM radio. In fact, the cellphone in your pocket could be interfering with Remote Start.
